Gioachino Antonio Rossini (1792 – 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La Cenerentola and the French-language epics Moïse et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell. A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart". Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history.

"Variazzioni di Clarinetto" (Variations for Bb Clarinet and Piano) is a set arrangements of Rossini's early sets of variations for clarinet and orchestra, dating from 1809-1810. Both of them are connected by two things: Rossini's extremely elaborate musical language, involving rather breathtakingly virtuoso lines for the soloist; and some of their musical ideas which would then find their way into Rossini's more mature operas.

The first concerto, in C major, is a tremendously delightful affair: starting with a decidedly dramatic introduction, the piece soon settles into Rossini's exorbitant treatment of a pastoral theme that is quickly turned into an ever-difficult solo for the clarinet.

The second piece or, more accurately its' second section, a theme and variations that are derived from it, while written in 1810, was used later for Malcolm's stunning cavatina in 1819. Both treatments of the musical material are presented in this arrangement, as it provides an interesting opportunity not only to compare them but also to think over a hypothesis that some of the clarinet writing could be used as base for ornamenting the later cabaletta.
